The Gastown Steam Clock is one of my fondest childhood memories (although for some reason I had convinced myself it was in Toronto…?), so when we came across it while walking through Gastown (you think I would have twigged…?!) I was a tad excited!
We have over half an hour of footage in & around this clock from a family holiday back in 1992, where my dad was waiting to film the steam…but start filming just after 11:45am…so we have 15minutes of a shaking video pointed at a clock with my mother not too impressed in the background! 😉
Oh! And I finally managed to get a full length photo of myself for an outfit post…though all you can really see is my vintage coat I scored off etsy, my Sorel boots that I have lived in since we arrived, skinny black jeans from Sportsgirl, a white Roxy beanie & a cream scarf from David Jones.
(I was wearing 3 tops underneath – 2 of which were thermals, & a pair of tights underneath my jeans! Gotta keep those layers going!)
see – so excited!
Gastown was so beautiful! There was so much new business amongst the old heritage buildings – new cafes, boutiques & incredible office spaces
It had such an old world feel to it
Not to mention some of the best coffees I’ve had on the trip to date! (Thank you Around the World! You’re amazing!)
And right next door we found Meat & Bread – a sandwich bar that made the tastiest toasted sandwiches ever!
I had a triple cheese melt, but the Mister’s Lamb special won hands down!
We wandered around China Town for a while before stumbling across the Jimi Hendrix Shrine!
Such an incredible find and so unexpected! It wasn’t listed in any of the guides we’d read!
It’s our last night in Vancouver, as tomorrow we’re jumping on the Amtrak & heading to Seattle!
See you in the USA
